The 4th Pan African Youth Conference on African Unity and Development and the Annual General Assembly Meeting of the African Youth Commission (AYC), is scheduled to take place from 23-27 March 2020 in Nairobi, Kenya under the theme: ”Beyond All Talks, Youth as Drivers of Africa’s Peace, Political and Socio-Economic Development”.
